You can also take a few minutes boat ride to the offshore beaches Îlot Maître and Îlot Canard. All of these locations provide opportunity to engage in outdoor water sports all year round. The cultural diversity will be felt throughout the city as well — whether it’s through sightseeing the traditional architecture such as Saint Joseph’s Cathedral or dining in the fusion of flavours and cuisines.
8
Mare Island, New Caledonia
Mare Island, also known as Nengone, is the second-largest of the Loyalty Islands. This French overseas territory nestles on the New Caledonia archipelago in the Pacific Ocean. Mare was a former coral atoll and is home to 6,900 inhabitants of mainly Melanesian heritage with French their main language. Pay a visit to the Natural Aquarium for snorkelling around coral reefs teeming with colourful fish, venture up to Warrior's Leap in Wakone, and spend a few hours swimming and sunbathing at beautiful Yedjele Beach. Head inland to explore the island's curiosities including the stalactite-covered Pethoen and Medu caves, the legendary Hnaenedre fortifications, and the infamous Wapoulanode mound. Perhaps sample the traditional Bougna dish which comprises seafood or chicken and root vegetables wrapped in a banana leaf and baked in an underground brick-lined oven.
9
Port Vila, Vanuatu
The harbourside capital of Vanuatu, Port Vila is home to colourful markets showcasing local produce and unique handicrafts. Take a boat trip out to the private island of Iririki to snorkel the vivid blue waters and catch a glimpse of fascinating sea life. Mele Cascades is a wondrous natural attraction; observe the waters rushing and the sounds of birds tweeting. The National Museum of Vanuatu offers traditional culture and art, photo displays, and sand-drawing demonstrations. Take a spectacular helicopter ride with Vanuatu Helicopters to marvel at the sensational scenery or chill out near Kumul Highway at Chantilly's on the Bay for a delicious seaside coffee.
10
Mystery Island, Vanuatu
Situated on the southern point of the Vanuatu archipelago, Mystery Island is a tiny uninhabited islet. Although there are no permanent residents, you won’t be alone when you arrive. Locals from the nearby Aneityum Island set up beach village markets to greet guests with local handcrafted goods every day. For sure, the highlight of the islet is the fun in the waters. Grab your snorkel and go diving in the crystal clear waters or take a short boat ride to Aneityum; where you can take off and explore the nearby tropical surrounds atop a paddle board.
11
At Sea
12
Isle of Pines, New Caledonia
The Isle of Pines is a small island situated south of the mainland New Caledonia. You won’t find mass tourism here. Instead, its breathtaking beauty is purely the nature — untouched for centuries. Relax on the white sand beaches of Kanumera bay, or sail atop canoes alongside dolphins and turtles from Upi Bay. You can also swim with thousands of multi-coloured fish in the crystal clear waters of Oro Bay. Although now a paradise of natural wonders, the Isle of Pine was once a penal colony; remnants of which can still be found on the south-western part of the island.

Background
Carnival Splendor
Overview
For a ship so far from ordinary, it’s only fitting that this one visits some amazing, out-of-the-way destinations. In 2013, Carnival Splendor will be cruising on down to South America, to get you up-close with ports like Barbados, Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro. It’s hard to tell which onboard space best represents Carnival Splendor — they all seem to hint at the amazing time you’re going to have. El Morocco Lounge hosts comedy shows, musical performances, karaoke and more… and wears its 1930s namesake clearly on its nameplate. The words “Royal Flush Casino” incite visions of winning, while onboard jazz club’s moniker — The Cool — simply says it all without saying a word. And the Pinnacle Steakhouse can be found not only at the height of elegant dining, but at the apex of the ship. If you like your fun to flow, there are options aplenty. If you list “splish” and “splash” among your favorite terms, there’s the Splash Park. Those into sitting and sliding are invited to try the signature Carnival Twister Waterslide. How about floating or swimming around? Carnival Splendor has pools all over the place, including the midship pool featuring a retractable roof that makes any day a pool day. So whether you splish or splash, you’ll find hydro-excitement galore. If relaxation is more your thing, Serenity Adult-Only Retreat is more your place. Or if you’re looking to take relaxation to the extreme, direct your attention to the Cloud 9 Spa, featuring more (and better) ways to kick back than just about anywhere else, on land or at sea. You haven’t lived until you’ve relaxed in a Thalassotherapy pool, or chilled — so to speak — in a dry heat chamber.
